A couple of weekends ago I went around Somerset House to see the Chris Stein/Negative: Me, Blondie, and The Advent of Punk exhibition. It was well worth it and I’d advise anyone to go, although it closes on the 24th. I saw super cool photos of Blondie, The Ramones, Richard Hell, Iggy Pop and many others that were involved in the NYC punk scene in the late 70’s. The photos were absolutely brilliant and so inspiring, not just because of the people in them but also makes me want to learn how to take good pictures!
I, the London Fashion Week virginFebruary 17, 2014
Yes, I had never been to the London Fashion Week before. Not that I have been now, but as I was right on the other side of Somerset House to see the exhibition Isabella Blow: Fashion Galore! (which, by the way, I highly recommend) and decided to go and have a look at what was going on. Unfortunately photography wasn’t allowed in the exhibition so I couldn’t take any images to show you, just this one, taken by the entrance.
I was with my friend Lala from Ohlalali, and by the time we arrived at the entrance on the other side we could see that a lot of people were already leaving. I think most likely because the sun was starting to go down, as there were still shows going on, for what I gathered. Nonetheless, there were still plenty of people hanging around, taking photos or waiting for someone to ask them to take their photos. I was only there for about 20 minutes, took some photos of a couple of people and left as there was nothing there to see, really. I didn’t really understand why people will go and spend their days hanging around if they’re not either working or attending the shows…
These girls scandalized me, because it was goddamn cold!!!
Regular blokes – having all the fun.
Cute looking girl.
And this is me… wrapped up very warm as I am still recovering from a mofo cold. This photo was taken in a much less stylish location – in front of Tesco’s! Haha. Details: Coat – Zara, Metallic Leather Skirt – River Island (both from a swap with my friend Lili), Knee Highs – H&M (on sale), Bag – Ahcahcum Muchacha, Pink Boots – Doc Martens (via Ebay), Ivory Cashmere Jumper – from a jumble sale, Cardigan – H&M (via Ebay), Scarf – secret Santa, Hat – it was my Mum’s.
I am told I may be given some decent photos of the Fashion Week shenagigans to post later in the week, so stay tuned!
